THE Megans Society Fraternity and Sorority Visayas Chapter conducted a series of gift-giving activities in Western Visayas as part of the Christmas celebration.
The activities were held simultaneously in the towns of Sara, San Joaquin, San Miguel, Pototan, Iloilo City, and Negros Occidental.
Last Dec. 17, 2016, the group held a gift giving which benefited 50 families of Brgy. Manalad Sitio in San Ramon, Kabankalan City, Negros Occ.
Families in barangays Zerudo and Preciosa in Sara, Iloilo also received Noche buena goods, clothes, and toys.
Headed by Board Member Tito Damaso and Dendy Bacorayo of Northern Iloilo, the team also shared their blessings to Sara, Iloilo.
Hope Malones and Alumni President Rene Prado of Iloilo City area gave gifts to 38 children and 50 families at Brgy. Ortiz, City Proper. The beneficiaries enjoyed the coloring, fun games, tutorial and feeding project.
In Brgy. San Jose, San Miguel, Iloilo, a total of 50 families received gift bags spearheaded by Alumni President Herzl Andalajao of Aleosan-Pavia Area.
Meanwhile, a coastal cleanup activity at Brgy. Sta Rita, San Joaquin Iloilo was spearheaded by Hymer Zam Enriques of Southern Iloilo Area before a Ward Visit in Pototan, Iloilo headed by Regional Organizer Eric Pedregosa and Alumni President BM Poras.
The project was organized by National Executive Committee of Visayas President Dennis Pedrosa. It aims to give back to community, and proved that their organization is not just a so-called fraternity and sorority but a group of active individuals who can serve the society through different acts of kindness.
"This is the first time that all areas in Visayas made a simultaneous gift giving project. I hope that this will help the families of different communities as they celebrate the yuletide season. Thank you to all who supported this noble cause. Rest assured that it will continue next year as we aim for more community activities," Pedrosa added.
